El Camino Eagles Win on the Road

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The El Camino Eagles headed on the road for their first official game of the season at Rosemont High School. With high expectations for the season, the Eagles came ready to battle. Winning the coin toss, the Eagles chose to defer the kick off, allowing their defensive prowess to take the field. With star linebacker Jim Carter at the helm, the eagles held Rosemont to only four plays in their first series. The Eagles, full of nerves, struggled with three offensive penalties and a fumble, completing only seven plays in their first offensive series, handing the ball back to Rosemont on their own 28 yard line.

The referees continued to let the flags fly into the following series, throwing three flags on Carter for helmet to helmet tackles, the legitimacy of which are still under debate. Carter, a division one college level player already offered a scholarship from Sac State, had to take his game down a notch. With three 15 yard penalties, Rosemont was able to capitalize and get their first touchdown. Out of the gate, the Eagles went to the air completing a 32 yard pass from Kamani Elam to Kijana Zigler, putting the Eagles on Rosemont’s 30 yard line. Two plays later, Elam ran the ball in himself on a sweeping quarterback keeper.

Rosemont answered by marching down the field to be intercepted in the end zone by Zigler. The teams continued to battle on into the fourth quarter with the Eagles controlling the game well into the late part of the second half. Rosemon, on full tilt, opted for an onside kick which they were able to convert into a touchdown, bringing them within one touchdown of the Eagles. Rosemont, lining up for their second onside kick, was met by a well charged Eagles special teams unit ready to not make the same mistake twice. The Eagles maintained possession from the kick and were able to run the clock down for their first win. Zigler ended with a total of 11 carries totalling 93 yards in close competition with Malik Stewart who carried 12 for 77 yards. Carter ended the game with 12 solo tackles and five assist, totaling 17 tackles and 1 sack.

The Eagles play their first home game this week at the newly renovated Abbott Field against Sac High, a team they met back in 2012 for the division playoffs. JV starts at 5:15 p.m. and Varsity at 7:30 p.m. Get there early to get a good seat and snack.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The El Camino Eagles had their first game of the season Saturday, August 23rd against the Oakmont Vikings, and while the schedule might have had “scrimmage” in parenthesis, the athletes were running at full speed. The first game of the year is always a scrimmage, allowing coaches, athletes, and referees to get back into gear and familiarize themselves with any new rules.

With no official score being kept and a running clock of two 30 minute halves, the Eagles started the game off right with a quarterback sack on the second play. On offense, the Eagles ended the day with three touchdowns and an optimistic look to the season ahead.
